Detachment and replacement of hoses of the cooling system

Do not disconnect any hoses of a cooling path before full cooling of the engine - see the subsection "Precautionary measures" in the Section the General information and precautionary measures.

If during performance of the checks listed in appropriate section of the Head Routine maintenance defects of hoses of the cooling system are revealed, they have to be replaced.

Empty the cooling system. If the cooling liquid filled to the highway is rather fresh, it is subject to reuse and has to merge in a pure container.

Try to remember a route of laying of the hose which is subject to replacement. For a detachment of a hose weaken collars of its fastening on unions/branch pipes of the corresponding components. Shift collars on a hose, having completely freed the sites of the last put on unions. Carefully remove a hose from the unions / branch pipes. For fastening of hoses collars of two types are used: standard, and also spring for which otpuskaniye it is necessary to squeeze flat-nose pliers the free ends.

Remember that inlet and final branch pipes of a radiator are rather fragile elements - do not make excessive efforts at removal of hoses from them. For simplification of removal rotate a hose on the union. As a last resort, strongly "stuck" hose can be cut off from a branch pipe by a knife - despite connected about in such a way certain material inputs, nevertheless will be to replace a hose cheaper, than to get a new radiator (nevertheless, previously make sure available near at hand a replaceable hose).

At installation of a new hose at first put on it fixing collars, only after it pull a hose on unions/branch pipes of the corresponding components of a cooling path. Some hoses and their unions are equipped with landing tags - take care of their correct combination.

For simplification of landing of rigid hoses to unions it is necessary to moisten slightly the ends of the last with soap solution, or previously to warm up the ends of a hose in warm water - do not use any oils as lubricant.

Pull a hose the ends on unions and check correctness of its laying in a motive compartment. Displace collars by the ends of a hose, having brought them for flaring of unions/branch pipes. Tighten coupling screws.

Fill the cooling system (see the Head Routine maintenance).

Start the engine, then attentively check system for existence of signs of leak of cooling liquid.
